tv The O Reilly Factor FOX News April 15, 2010 8:00pm-9:00pm EDT
we love the irs. really. we don't want them here though. ever. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight. >> if you don't buy health insurance, you go to jail? >> do you think it's fair if somebody says well i'm just not going to have it if i get sick then i will just go to the emergency room and send the bill to you? >> bill: the far left media attacks fox news for reporting accurately about mandatory health insurance. why are nbc news and "time" magazine lying? >> i will disobey my orders to deploy because i deserve the truth about barack obama's constitutional eligibility. >> not obeying orders because he thinks president obama is illegitimate. megyn kelly has been investigating. >> you got to ask yourself one question. do i feel lucky? well, do you, punk?
you complete me. >> hey, hey, hey. >> bill: do american women prefer macho men or sensitive guy? ♪ i can be your hero, baby. >> bill: the culture warriors will weigh in ♪ you can take my breath away. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. another attack on fox news falls flat. once again, once again, nbc news is highlighted dishonest prop began ga ada from the far-left media matters outfit. sadly "time" magazine also participated in the sham. controversy about senator tom coburn's assertion that fox news scared some americans by saying
they could go to prison if they don't buy health insurance under obama care. on tuesday, here is what i said to the senator. >> we researched to find out if anybody on fox news had ever said you are going to jail if you don't buy health insurance. nobody has ever said it so it seems to me that what you did was you used fox news as a whipping boy when we didn't qualify there. >> bill: now, senator coburn admitted he may have made a mistake. but to be fair the mistake is understandable, last fall when jail time was on the table, fox news reported it as we should have. listen to these sound bites. >> do you think it's appropriate to have a threat of jail time for those who refuse to buy insurance? >> you know, what i think is appropriate is that in the same way that everybody has to get auto insurance and if you don't, you are subject to some penalty. >> i'm just trying to understand, if you don't buy health insurance, you go to jail? you didn't answer my question. >> well, the point, there is, i
think the legislation is very fair in this respect. >> bill: all right. now as we all know the prison option was taken off the table when the final obama care bill was being debated. and that's what we were talking to senator coburn about, the final bill debate. not all that stuff. so, what i said is absolutely true. nobody at fox news reported inaccurately about the obama care prison situation. nobody. yet, media matters, as they always do distorted the entire situation. shamefully nbc news and "time" magazine lapped up the garbage and put it right out there. now, we expect that from nbc. but "time" magazine? come on. you guys have got to wise up. the importance of this is that you, the every day american, are now being lied to on a regular basis by people working for huge corporations and nothing is being done about it a voter-driven republican -- republic cannot survive if lies supersede the truth. the bottom line on this story is
senator coburn, again a good man, made an honest mistake. that mistakes was picked up by nbc news to ham are fox news which is kicking their butt all over the place in the cable news ratings. the good news is nbc news will soon be taken over by comcast, an honest corporation and perhaps changes will be made. the american people deserve an honest government and an honest media. do we not? that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, another big tea party rally today this time in washington where thousands showed up to vent their frustrations over the policies of president obama. yesterday, 5,000 tea party people protested in boston harbor, the site of the original tea party, 1773. again, it was disenchantment with the obama administration that drove the people to come out. now the tea party says it is targeting some politicians for defeat next november. with us, fox news analyst and radio talk show star laura ingraham is following that okay. so, some big names here, right? barbara boxer in california is being targeted by the tea party.
>> barbara boxer right now is only up, bill, 3 points against tom campbell, okay? former congressman campbell, very popular in the state but not a lot of name recognition nationally. chuck devore, another figure, state assembly man, is he running in the republican primary, also maybe a 2 or 3 point split. carlie fee or fiorina. same thing. -- looks bad right now. looks bad. >> bill: the big dog is harry reid the senate majority leader in nevada the tea party people are targeting him. >> interesting last saturday he appeared at a really big immigration rally in nevada. he had tens of thousands of people from a lot of far left groups who were supporting him because they think he is going to support amnesty. is he trying to push back. is he down, bill, 20 plus points in the polls. basically mahmoud ahmadinejad would have a better chance of winning a re-election.
lowden runs tarkanian's son is running. >> bill: former basketball coach. >> exactly. >> bill: i think he is done. >> is he so done. he knows it is he playing a fight. is he fighting a little bit with the immigration issue. >> bill: arkansas another democrat that is done blanche lincoln. i think she will probably lose. so that's two, possibly three big democratic senators. now what about specter in pennsylvania? this one is going to be tight. >> spector in the end, people don't like a turn coat. he made the big deal about switching parties and voted for the stimulus bill along with the two main senators. people are still mad about the stimulus bill, bill. they are mad about health care. they are still mad about stimulus. >> bill: you think is he going to lose. >> pat toomey. big name recognition. is he a hard-charging but very substantive fiscal conservative. too many my wanted to run last time and they chose specter
instead of toomey in that primary. >> bill: targeting our guy barney frank. this is impossible. i know this district very well. they would vote for ahmadinejad there i do believe. >> a good friend of mine is my roommate at dartmouth knows all the big players rumor has it he isn't 100% he isn't going to run. >> that's what he is saying because he feels there is push back. there is a guy who is a student at the wharton school in pennsylvania who -- harvard masters degree. marine reservist. he is actually running. who knows, all i can say is, bill, this year anything can happen. is it likely, probably not. >> bill: he will run just to annoy me. >> just to get back on the show. and he loves me too, so. >> bill: you might know this but miss laura has two adopted children for from overseas, correct. >> yes. >> guatemala and russia. >> yes. >> bill: we have this where the
russian government has stopped all adoptions to americans. because the tennessee mother who sent -- laura and her russian baby. >> at red square there. >> bill: what do you think about this story. >> some confusion whether the adoptions have actually been suspended. one russian official says yes. the ministry of education which you have to go through when you adopt in russia says we haven't heard that yet. state department says we haven't gotten final word. what we know there is enormous amount of pressure inside of russia to get more accountability in the united states. and they have you know, they have tracked a couple of cases where russian kids have died in the hands of their adoptive parents, one left in a car northern virginia child left in a car died. huge issue. >> bill: isn't it hard to adopt in russia? >> that's the point. thousands of people have adopted since 1991, bill. 99.9% of the kids are doing fabulously well. parents are so happy. this is a horrible case this woman in tennessee put an american citizen. that boy is an american citizen on a one-way plane back to
moscow. why she hasn't been questioned by authorities. >> bill: she has. she may be charged. >> she better be charged. that kid is an american citizen. his civil rights may have been violated. >> bill: she claims he has fetal alcohol syndrome. >> there is a problem with that there is a mechanism for dealing with that if she really couldn't deal with the child, she actually could have escorted him -- there are ways to -- this is putting thousands of children's lives in jeopardy. and let me tell you, these parents who are now in the middle of an adoption process, bill, it's heart-breaking. i hope this can get resolved. because these kids need a great home. >> bill: finally, miss laura hangs out with a zell crowd. >> no i don't. i never go out at all. once in a while. >> bill: throw that picture up there. right now. >> stop it. >> bill: look at this. you are not hanging out with a swell crowd? look at the pocket hankie. >> first of all. >> bill: yes. >> he was standing in the doorway of george wills' house. >> bill: george will. another swell. >> they invited you. they said you didn't show up.
>> bill: they didn't invite me. they never. >> we i went up to him and he grabbed me by the shoulder and said you are my favorite. >> i said favorite among whom? >> he is like a back slapping kind of guy. i just was laughing so hard. >> bill: you posed for a picture with joe biden. >> absolutely i have a facebook page to maintain. facebook, twitter. >> he loves you? >> you are the number one fav i'm a close second. that's the sense i got. it was just a sense about the whole ora. >> bill: i would love to have him on the program. >> bill, i kept saying too bad is he not really well informed, really competent and a conservative because is he a really fun guy. >> bill: joe biden? >> yeah. he does. is he self-deprecating. i like that. >> bill: all right, mr. vice president, you have it. you are on notice. arizona may pass a very strict anti-american law. we will tell you all about it new study on what kind of men
so we earned a ski trip twice as fast. we get double miles every time we use our card. ( thuds ) i'll take this. ( crashing ) double miles add up quick. and all of those. so we brought the whole gang. one adult, one goat please. it's hard to beat double miles. everyone knows two is better than one. introducing the venturcard from capital one... with double miles on every pchase every day. go to capitalone.com. wht's in your waet? oh, poor baby. >> bill: unresolved problem segment tonight we are expecting new federal legislation on immigration any time sure to be controversial. arizona has an enormous problem with illegal aliens, they are set to pass a new strict state law that would allow cops to
stop and question any suspicious person and take them into custody if they couldn't prove citizenship. also a judge could fine an entire city if the new arizona law is not enforced vigorous enough. joining us from phoenix editor of a web site that focuses on immigration issues. now, obviously, you know, racial profiling is going to be the big thing in this arizona law, which i believe is going to pass. i think you know that, too. it's already passed the house, the governor is going to sign it. so the arizona cops, as they have in mayor cove have -- maria county already. hey, prove you are america. you say what? >> well, what i wouldn't do is ball federal immigration policy. it gives to arizona a specific way of applying immigration policy different than any other state inviting every other state
to have its own policy. >> bill: no doubt it will be challenged on that basis that federal law supersedes. >> it will. it will also be challenged on the basis this is a civil libertarian's nightmare. it's going to require -- the only way to discharge reasonable suspicion is for every arizonaen to walk around with a state i.d. i mean, it requires a certain level of i.d. in order to be able to walk around freely. >> bill: stops you on a traffic thing and says license and registration you are required to show it so i'm not so worried about that i do understand. >> well, you are not worried about that if you are driving. you are not worried about that if you are driving. >> bill: i got it. >> walking the dog on sunday morning, you don't reasonably expect to carry your papers when you do that, do you, bill? >> bill: walking the dog you can say i live over there, officer, i will walk home and show you. but it's the skin color thing that's going to really raise the ire because they are going to be looking for latin looking people. >> that's right. >> bill: that's what illegal immigration is all about in
arizona. however, you have a half million illegal aliens in the state costing 1.3 billion, arizona doesn't have any money. they have to do something and the arizonaen legislature says the federal government is not protecting us and hasn't been protecting us, so we have to do this. and you answer? >> the answer is you don't throw out civil liberties because you have a major issue a major federal issue and you don't value -- ball con nice the united states of america because you have a crises. >> bill: what would you do if you were the governor to stem the illegal immigration. >> if you are the governor of arizona, or the governor of other border states, you have to seriously question congress and question the obama administration and the prior administration because of their lack of inaction and you have to begin to take steps to deal with this issue. >> bill: give me specifics. you are giving me theory now. come on, have you been around a long time. you are giving me theory.
come on,. >> i'm not giving you theory. >> bill: we need help but the states have been doing that for decades and they are not getting help. tell me, if you are the governor of arizona, what you do to bring this problem down. what do you do specifically? >> you can't say that. >> jon kyl is the number two guy in the united states senate, bill on the republican side. john mccain was the candidate for president of the united states. on the republican side. and you are telling me can do nothing in this instance. >> bill: two decades has not been able to do this since ronald reagan. >> i agree with that but you are asking me what i would do. i would be confronting those people. i would be -- you might say that bill. >> bill: by kicking it back to the feds, you are not going to solve the problem. >> this governor is doing -- and then what you would you do -- the constitution allows immigration policy federal
government for a very, very good reason. we should not have each state having its own policy on immigration. we would all move to wyoming, bill and have open policy if that were the case. the fact of the matter is, there has to be a single, rational, thoughtful way of dealing with this issue. >> bill: i think there will be a new federal proposal coming out very, very shortly. thanks very much. we appreciate your time. >> thank you, sir. >> bill: directly ahead the kelly file, army colonel refuses to obey orders because he doesn't think president obama is legitimate. a divorced catholic father can take his daughter to church. miss megyn is next. [ male announcer ] whose idea was this?
it says that when you buy a grand caravan, dodge will give you 60 days to decide if you want to keep it. that's ridiculous. look at it. it's got seating for up to seven, a smooth v6 engine and a five star government crash test rating. why would you need 60 days, really, who is that indecisive? the dodge "you won't need 60 days to decide but we'll give it to you anyway" event.
refusing to obey orders until he sees president obama's birth certificate. >> i will disobey my orders to deploy because i and i believe all servicemen and women and the american people deserve the truth about president obama's constitutional eligibility to the office of the presidency and the commander and chief. if he is nebility then my orders and indeed all orders are illegal. >> bill: the army is not thrilled about that movement against colonel laken. here now attorney and fox news anchor megyn kelly see it each day at 1:00 p.m. he is a bronze star winner. medical doctor, very smart guy. but you can't have the army, the marines, the navy, anybody saying you know i will obey the orders i like and i will do this, that. you just can't have it. >> you can't. that's why he will face a court martial and probably succeed against him. you know, if he had legitimate objections, there is a way of managing that. you can try to file a legal proceeding as others have. putting aside the merits of that, that would be played out
in the courts as it is supposed to. but you can't just say i refuse to obey orders until my objections to your status. >> bill: why doesn't he just resign? that is my question. the army doesn't keep new there if you don't want to be in there. just resign. i think this guy is obviously trying to make a political point. but the birther movement has been, you know, just hasn't gotten any traction. it really hasn't. >> right. you know, none the less, is he a true believer. interestingly, did he not go with a lawyer who has brought the other objections on behalf of other birthers who are in the army, he went with somebody else. i don't know that he is necessarily a formally affiliated with the group as opposed to having his own i want objections. >> bill: he wants to make a point, there is nothing wrong with that we have to tell everybody that, look, the military is there not to be political. it's to follow orders. and if there is a demonstrable problem with the president, we have a process to handle that. >> right. >> bill: i want to ask you a question. >> it's the same thing bill under president bush people didn't want to go to war because they said he was illegitimate president and it was illegitimate war. that wasn't allowed them and it shouldn't be allowed now.
>> bill: do you know how we proved that president obama was born in the united states? >> you here at the factor? >> bill: yes. you missed that. >> i heard you report on it. >> bill: we got the birth announcements in onchts 1961. >> at the appeared in the paper. >> two honolulu newspapers. now, that's impossible. you would have to know -- we are going to fake barack obama's birth because some day he is going to be president. newspapers only when you call them and you tell them, hey, the baby is born. >> guess what we have a little baby. >> baby jesus here. >> maybe there were two barack obamas born in honolulu in 1961. >> bill: there is the birth announcement. he is born in the united states. that's impossible. you can't fake that. >> not only that but the hawaii state officials who have seen the actual birth certificate have come out and said we have seen it. >> bill: i didn't even rely on that. >> i'm just saying. >> bill: relied on something that you can't say. >> none the less, these birthers -- >> bill: now. >> they believe it.
>> bill: in another controversy, the marines -- marine on facebook who is in trouble. what did this marine do? tell me. >> he went on the facebook and created this book called armed forces tea party patriots. >> bill: armed forces tea party patriots so is he a tea party. >> right. he likes what the tea party stands for. he was going to go on another network to talk about his group and i guess the controversy surrounding surrounding this facebook page. the military called him. in he is only 24 years old and said you might want to refresh yourself with the department of defense. >> bill: the military didn't want him out on cable twinchts they didn't go if a that are. you might want to refresh yourself. he abandoned the facebook page and abandoned the interview. >> bill: even though you are targeting the marines. you do have a right to have a political opinion on your own side. if you want to say it, you can say it? >> they are right. i have to tell you the department of defense directive is really restrictive. in essence it says you cannot participate in any partisan debates whatsoever. even if you are not wearing your uniform. that's ridiculous that would stop two servicemen from sitting over lunch and debating, you
know, politics or the next presidential election. >> bill: this is in what now. >> the department of defense directive basically sets forth what they can and cannot do. some of it is legit. you can't in your uniform like stand up at a rally and say vote for barack obama or vote for john mccain because they don't want people thinking the u.s. military is going to do something to them if they don't do what they say. that's legit. you don't have full speech rights when you go into the military. they can curtail some things. >> bill: while you are in uniform. >> not near as broad as they have purported to in my view. >> bill: if this sergeant wanted to take it to the limit, he would win probably. >> the aclu have a right here. >> bill: i don't think this guy is going to push it? >>. no he has already abandoned it. >> bill: i don't think he like the other guy. the other guy wants to get thrown out. >> too bad for him he does have a point to make shear. he is allowed to say what he wants to say. >> bill: are you telling this 24-year-old guy to go up against the army and defense department. >> maybe pushing back a little. >> bill: i wouldn't. i think that's bad advice. >> what right do they have to come and tell him, suggest
strongly that he take down facebook page. that's none of their business. >> unless he wants to make this life cause, his career is better served saying all right. >> why. he is a soldier. is he used to standing up. >> bill: if you are watching, kelly is giving you one advice, i'm giving you another. i respect you either way. >> our soldiers protect our constitutional rights all the time. is he marine and that's what he should do. >> bill: i'm going to hold kelly over. accusations against a teacher in massachusetts that she says have ruined her life. this is an amazing story. the culture warriors on what kind of american men women prefer. tough guys or sweet guys like me? we hope you stay tuned to those reports. i'm at the doctor getting my shoulder looked at.
as we're finishing up, i mention i'm going to the bathroom more often. he checks it out. good thing. turns out... my urinary symptoms -- such as going frequently, trouble going, flow starts and stops... and going often at night -- are due to bph, also called enlarged prostate. he says or time, avodart has been shown to shrink the prostate, improve urinary symptoms, and reduce the risk of prostate surgery. only your health care provider can tell if your symptoms... are from bph and not a more serious condition... like prostate cancer. do not donate blood until 6 months after stopping avodart. tell your doctor if you have liver disease. rarely sexual side effects, swelling or tenderness... of the breasts can occur. avodart is for men only.
>> bill: continuing with the kelly file, terrible story out of mass nasa. 30-year-old middle school teacher charged with sexual assault and statutory rape on 13-year-old boy. the alleged incident took place 7 years ago. the charges were filed in 2007. earlier this month the charges were dropped and she says the ordeal has ruined her life. here once again, megyn kelly. the strength of this case is what i'm interested in. this is a mother of five. >> um-huh. >> bill: okay. wiped out their money, cost more than 100,000 to defend it. >> right. >> bill: now they drop the charges. she says her life is ruined. family is ruined. everything is ruined. where do you come down on it? >> well, it's tough to say because there wasn't a lot of evidence against her apart from the testimony of the boy. who was 13 years old when the
alleged abuse started. she took him in. he was her student. she took him in as a foster child. and according to him, they had a relationship, a sexual relationship that lasted 16 months. he then, according to the authorities, complained or told an older adult about it. that adult said this is abuse and needs to be reported. he then did. and according to the prosecutors, he told the same story repeatedly to everyone, to the grand jury, to the prosecutor, to the official. >> bill: on the other side, they were able to come up with that the boy had some problems. >> right. >> bill: all right? >> he threatened his biological parents and apparently threatened her as well. which you might expect if there was abuse happening. that wouldn't be totally un -- >> bill: that preceded the abuse charges that the boy was a problematic child which is why he had to be supervised in the first place. >> put in foster care. >> bill: nobody was there nobody knows what happened. but it seems to me in cases like, this when this family and you mention the five children,
the woman has five children, can be destroyed. it's a very tough thing. >> the prosecutors were quick to point out that she had another incident where she was alleged to have had a relationship with a high schooler after he graduated. they say she grooms -- their allegation was she takes these young boys and grooms them. >> bill: could they prove that. >> that one was out in the open. but the kid was -- no longer a minor when they had the affair. that's what the prosecutors claim they did. she admitted that. they say. >> bill: do the prosecutors feel badly about this case. >> no the prosecutors say she did it the only reason they can't go forward with it they can no longer find the victim. he was 20 when it started. is he gone. doesn't want to take a stabbed. i don't know. i don't know what the truth is. >> bill: the whole thing is horrible no matter how it went down: this is fascinating case. the divorce and mother is jewish and the father converted to judaism when he was originally catholic. then, when they split, the father wants to take little girl
to church, to catholic church. >> bill: the mother went to family court and to prevent that. i debated this situation. i believe i said. i could be wrong because we do so many of them. that the father was going to win. because you can't deny a legitimate parent the right to take their child to any kind of house of worship. that's exactly what happened. another judge overturned -- >> your statement of law is accurate. you have a constitutional right to expose your child to your religion. >> bill: whatever prenups you make. >> generally you have that right. i have to say when you first read this case you feel very empathetic toward him then you read i don't know. he was giving her jazz. they agreed she was going to be jewish. after the divorce he converts back to christianity and he has her baptized and he sends his wife, his ex-wife pictures of the baptism. she says he was basically just pimping me. and that's when the judge
stepped in and said all right, i'm going to give injunction say nothing more of that no more mr. reyes taking the kid to the church. >> bill: that is outrageous. >> you are not allowed to do that he is a allowed to expose the girl to christianity if he wants to. >> bill: you are the father of the child. you can take the child to whatever church you want. it's not harmful to do that. >> the only reason the judge had done that because he had been acting out. >> bill: that isn't the judge's job he isn't a nanny. >> find it in the best interest of the child. he was using the child as a prop to irritate the mother. >> bill: that's probably true. i'm not denying that the judge says you can ache take the child to church but you can't have any interaction with the mother about it you can't send any pictures. >> you know what he also did was called the press when he was going to bring the child to church. called everybody come film it while i take him to the church there is a pattern of this guy misbehaving. >> bill: can you slap that action down. >> agreed.
bill buy you are agreeing. you told me i didn't know anything about the law about the westboro baptist church that. >> was true. >> bill: now i'm perry mason. how did that happen? >> i stowed many people you are the best lawyer who is not really a lawyer i know. >> bill: you know, i'm smarter than that, as i said to you law school melted your brain. i still have objective and common sense. >> okay. >> bill: i didn't have it beaten out of me. what is it albany state law school. >> lisbon. no such thing as albany. we see it clearly because we don't have all the ivy in our eyes. >> bill: that's me. mr. i'vey. megyn kelly when we come right back, the most controversial story of the evening, perhaps of the year. what kind of men do american women want? the culture warriors have been investigating moments away.
of aberdeen in scotland tries to pinpoint what women want when it comes to men. they examine 4500 women's preferences in 30 different countries and concluded that women who live in countries with poor health care like brazil prefer macho men. guys who strut their manhood but women who live in healthy countries like sweden want sensitive guys think tom cruise and jerry maguire. in america where our health standards are fairly low most women like masculine guys according to the study. here now are gretchen carlson and fox news analyst margaret hoover. i have my theory. i will keep my big mouth shut until after we hear from you. what is the study from the scottish, tell us. >> look, americans are less healthy? i think what's interesting is that it tells us that testosterone is actually not rewarded. >> bill: in some countries. >> in the united states especially.
>> bill: they like macho men in the united states because we don't have the healthcare system. they are able to quantity phi that men with higher levels of testosterone are 43% more likely to cheat on wives. more likely to end their marriage in divorce. fight and pick on people. >> bill: why do women like macho men? >> american women only slightly -- >> bill: it's still a majority. >> i don't believe this study first of all. >> bill: you don't believe it 4500 women worldwide. carlson doesn't believe it. >> listen, i'm a deep person. >> bill: you are deep? what does that mean you? are deep? >> i overanalyze everything. but i spend about 3 hours reading this stid study today because i couldn't get it you are linking women's masculinity preference based on the health care that they have in their own country. >> bill: do you want to hear my theory? >> what. >> bill: okay. in countries where you are physically not secure, women go for the warrior protecter.
in countries where you are physically secure, where you have access to everything that can make -- they don't need the warrior. >> are you saying we don't have the health care in this country? >> bill: look. this is the scotts, they put forth this. >> that's the faces. you are not getting a chance to see the whole hunk. >> bill: hunk of what? >> i mean for women to. >> bill: hunk of burning love as elvis once said. >> for a woman to make a choice. >> these guys both look feminine to me. come on. is that the best we can do? put the camera on me then. all right? we don't need these guys. what's the matter with you hoover? >> i would like to see you with facial hair. >> bill: tattoo of a volkswagen on my back. >> oh wow! >> bill: you don't believe this study and couldn't care less about it. okay. here we go. now, carlson, there is a lawsuit filed by a mother or -- no, the
